    If we drop std Rust ceases to be economical due to the time it would take to reimplement the data structures and IO interfaces it provides, not to mention the event loop crate we use (calloop). At that point we'd be relying on so much FFI via eg. nix that the relative safety would be diminished too. After reimplementing all that it's not clear to me that we'd even save that much size, but I suppose it's possible.

  • rust-fuse

    Rust library for filesystems in userspace (FUSE)

  • WorkOS

    The modern identity platform for B2B SaaS. The APIs are flexible and easy-to-use, supporting authentication, user identity, and complex enterprise features like SSO and SCIM provisioning.

  • ltools

    LTools are a set of free, open-source productivity command-line tools (drawing inspiration from Unix commands and philosophy).
